George Jones' First Recording Session For Starday Records


George Jones*****(If You Were Mine)

This rare gem from George was recorded at his first session for Starday Records, dated January 6, 1954. Along with this track, three more songs were recorded: "No Money In This Deal" , "You're In My Heart" , and a song called "For Sale Or Lease", which remained unissued until Time-Life issued a CD, "Early Hits: The Starday Years", back in 2011.

His first record, the self-penned "No Money in This Deal", appeared in February 1954 on Starday Records and began the singer's association with producer and mentor H.W. "Pappy" Dailey and the song was actually cut in Starday Records' co-founder Jack Starnes' living room, from whose two names were combined to create the label.
